Film Review: 21

by Pat Johnson

Based on the book, Bringing Down The House, 21 is most effective as a 2 hour advertisement for Las Vegas. As for the film, if you've seen the trailer, you've seen the movie. While watching, I couldn't help but think that the truth would be more exciting than the dramatized version. It's shallow and predictable nature prevents it from being anything interesting and the likelihood that you'll enjoy the movie is roughly the same odds as a game of blackjack.
